Kuy, 38, married and a mother of two teen-aged children, is engaged in agriculture as the main business of her family. She owns a few plots of farmland, located in Kampong Chhnang province, on which she and her husband cultivate rice crops to generate income each harvesting season. Despite their hardships, they plan to educate their children and help them to earn a degree someday.
Due to inadequate capital to invest in her farming business, Kuy would like to borrow KHR 1,000,000 to purchase ten bags of fertilizers needed for rice production. She hopes she will be successful in her business, expand her farmland and make a good income for her family in the future.
